ETS-Lindgren Announces Technical Contributions to EMC+SIPI 2022

Automotive EMC, 5G Wireless, Calibration, EMP, and Site Validation Demo to Be Presented at Leading IEEE Symposium


CEDAR PARK, Texas, June 8, 2022 - ETS-Lindgren announced its technical contributions to the 2022 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Signal & Power Integrity (SIPI). The EMC+SIPI Symposium will be held in person from August 1 to 5, 2022, at the Spokane Convention Center in Spokane, Washington.  This year’s contributions include four invited presentations and six tutorials on a wide variety of topics, as well as a technical paper and hardware demonstration.  ETS-Lindgren is also proud to be a Symposium Sponsor and to support the IEEE EMC Society.  Visit Booth #303 during the Symposium Exhibition to learn about ETS-Lindgren's latest products and services.  Exhibit hours are scheduled from 10 am to 5 pm PDT on August 2; from 9 am to 5 pm PDT on August 3; and from 9 am to 12 pm PDT on August 4.  Please check the Symposium website for updates to the Exhibition schedule and related news.  Note that access to the Exhibition is available at no charge using an Exhibits Only registration. 


ETS-Lindgren's technical contributions begin on Monday morning, August 1, with several tutorials.  The morning sessions are scheduled from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm PDT each day.  The popular tutorial “EMC Testing Basics” returns to the technical program once again.  ETS-Lindgren’s Doug Kramer, Director of Lab Services (Acoustic/Calibration/EMC/Wireless Labs), will present "Calibration of EMC Test Equipment."  Mr. Kramer will also co-chair this tutorial session with Bob Mitchell of TÜV Rheinland N.A.  Mr. Mitchell will also present in this session, which features speakers from Hoolihan EMC Consulting, De Montfort University, and Clemson University/LearnEMC.  In addition, ETS-Lindgren’s EMC Systems Engineer Jack McFadden will contribute his expertise with the presentation “EMC Test Planning.”


Also on Monday morning, ETS-Lindgren’s Director of Business Development, Healthcare & Industry/Government, Tara Kellogg, will co-chair the tutorial “Recent Advancements in HEMP, EMP, and IEMI Protection – A Global Perspective” with Frank Sabath of Bundeswehr Research Institute for Protective Technologies and NBC Protection.  Ms. Kellogg will present on “EMP and IEMI Mitigation Strategies” with complementary presentations given by global experts Dr. Sabath (Germany), as well as Eric Easton with CenterPoint Energy (US) and Nicolas Mora with Technology Innovation Institute (United Arab Emirates).  


In parallel with the two Monday morning sessions above, Garth D’Abreu, ETS-Lindgren’s Director of Automotive Solutions, will start the day with the tutorial “Automotive EMC Standards and Instrumentation Update” as part of the Symposium’s “Standards Week” special track.  He will co-chair this tutorial with Craig Fanning of Elite Electronic Engineering.  Mr. D’Abreu will present “Evaluating Measurement Repeatability Challenges in Reverberation Chambers.”  Speakers from Elite, TÜV Rheinland, and Rohde & Schwarz round out the technical program.  


In the afternoon sessions scheduled from 1:30 to 5:30 pm each day, Mr. D’Abreu will continue with automotive topics on Monday in the tutorial “Automotive EMC – Advances in Design and Test Methodologies.”  In this session he co-chairs with Robert Kado of Stellantis, Mr. D’Abreu will present “Evaluating the Test Environment Options Available for Today’s Vehicles.”  Additional presentations will give an international perspective with contributors from RISE (Sweden) and Politecnico di Milano (Italy) as well as returning speakers from LearnEMC and Tesla.


In parallel with the above session on Monday afternoon, ETS-Lindgren’s Director of RF Engineering Zhong Chen will co-chair and present in the tutorial “Model Based System Engineering, Mode Filtering, Robotics: Modern Antenna Measurement Techniques for EMC and RF Applications.”  Mr. Chen will speak on “A New Concept to Enhance Site VSWR for Anechoic Chamber Performance Evaluation Using Mode Filtering Techniques.”  Extended presentations will also be given by co-chair Dennis Lewis of Boeing and Greg Masters of Next Phase Measurements.


Tuesday afternoon, August 2, features invited presentations by two ETS-Lindgren experts.  Mr. Chen returns as an invited speaker in the prestigious Clayton R. Paul Global University scheduled on August 2 to 4.  Mr. Chen will share his expertise on the topic of "Antennas" in an extended two-hour presentation from 3:30 to 5:30 pm PDT.  You can view the complete schedule of speakers and topics in this carefully curated course here.  Also on Tuesday afternoon, Mr. D’Abreu returns as an invited speaker in the tutorial session “Application of Reverb Chambers” chaired by Vignesh Rajamani of Exponent.  Mr. D’Abreu will present “Reverb Chamber Challenges.”


Wednesday, August 3, is a busy day for Zhong Chen.  He will present in the morning tutorial “Site Validation Standards by the American National Standards Committee (ANSC) C63® on EMC.”  As the chair of ANSC C63 Subcommittee 1 “Techniques and Developments,” he will share his expertise on “C63.25.1 – Site Validation for EMC Test Sites from 1 GHz to 18 GHz.”  Other speakers in this tutorial represent ANSC C63 member companies Cisco Systems, Intertek, and Hoolihan EMC Consulting.  In the afternoon, Mr. Chen will present in the special Short Course “Antennas: The Structural Elements of EMC.”  Back by popular demand from the 2018 IEEE EMC+SIPI Symposium, this year’s course again features noted author Professor Constantine A. Balanis.  Mr. Chen will present “Basic Concepts of Antenna Characterization and Applications for EMC Measurements” as an invited speaker.


After a day off on Thursday, ETS-Lindgren’s technical contributions will continue on Friday morning, August 5, with the tutorial “Innovative Wireless Methodologies for 5G New Radio and mmWave Applications.”  Co-chaired by ETS-Lindgren’s Director of Technology Development Michael Foegelle, this session features ETS-Lindgren’s Director of Business Development James Young presenting “Characterization of oRAN Base Station Antenna Performance.”  Rounding out the speaker list in this tutorial session are co-chair Harry Skinner of Intel, Aaron Cohen of Skyworks, and Dan Hoolihan of Hoolihan of EMC Consulting.


To conclude the company’s contributions to the technical program, Mr. Chen and ETS-Lindgren’s RF Engineer Yibo Wang will provide the demonstration “Debugging a Failed EMC Chamber Above 1 GHz Using Chamber Imaging Method” as part of the popular Experiments and Demonstrations program in the Exhibit Hall.  Mr. Wang is also the principal author of the paper “Comparison of EMC Chamber Debugging Techniques Above 1 GHz.”  Co-authored with Mr. Chen, this paper complements the demonstration and will be presented as part of the Technical Papers sessions.  The schedule for the Experiments and Demonstrations as well as the Technical Papers sessions will be announced on the Symposium website by June 30.  You can sign up for the Symposium Newsletter here to receive direct notice when this schedule is published.


ETS-Lindgren has big plans this year for its Exhibition.  “Please visit us in Booth #303 during the exhibition on August 2-4.  We will again have a large booth with live demonstrations as well as application engineers and sales professionals to assist our customers with their Calibration, EMC, EMP, Microwave/RF, Automotive, and Wireless test and measurement requirements,” said Janet O’Neil, ETS-Lindgren’s Customer Relations Manager and General Chair of the 2022 EMC+SIPI Symposium.  “It’s exciting to be back to an in-person Symposium after two years of virtual Symposia.  We look forward to reconnecting with visitors to our booth – please drop by and say hello!”
